More violence and more death in Iraq

AP is reporting 5 explosions and 41 deaths in Baghdad. Certainly, not the most violent day we've seen. But everytime I read a headline like this, I feel like I lose a tiny bit of my humanity. Pretty soon it will all be gone and then it will become a soulless numbers game. How many died today? Oh, not as many as yesterday ... Good.

This war was supposed to be the last option. It wasn't. And the people of Iraq continue to pay a heavy price. I pray that I don't become desensitized to their suffering.
